Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to?

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to? After one year of being with an attorney I'm now on my own. I ran out of money. We just filed the petition last week and I'm getting ready to serve it but my lawyer can't help me any more. In fact, I'm left to reading books about what I need to do. I'm suing a group of men for breach of fiduciary duty and defamation (among others), and the defendants lawyer is about to contact me for the first time since my lawyer has been off the case. I need to know how the process works... Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. It's going to be pretty strange questioning the defendants on the stand, how do people in my situation do that?

To what extent can a case be publicized, legally that is? I have a situation where I'm about to file against a group of very well kniw businessmen and I have hired an attorney yet but I'm getting very different opinions... One is telling me that the papers will pick up on it and that we shouldn't do anything and the other is saying the exact opposite, he's wanting to push for the publicity in a couple different cities. I don't want to be accused of malicious activity but I kind of like that idea? What does the law say about this?

I was pulled over and the officer said he paced me. the dash

I was pulled over for speeding and the officer said he paced me. the dash cam shows me passing the officer and the car he was following but has no speed anywhere. He did not use a radar gun. There is no set distance in Illinois or training for pacing. There is also no department policy on pacing. How is this legal. He said I was doing 61 in a 45 but I know this to be a lie as I looked at my speedometer when I went past the cop. the audio has been erased from the dash cam. He had pulled out of a parking lot and almost hit me and I blew my horn at him which I assume made him mad and 30 seconds later I was pulled over

It is way the most important stuff.When the courts prepared a seating diagram, and had all the potential jurors fill out a form with their occupation and political affiliation, etc- should they ahve told me that such a diagram and forms existed? Or was I just supposed to know that, even though I am pro se? Kerry

I have a question: i have a DUI trial set 22nd and jury

I have a question: i have a DUI trial set for Jan 22nd and jury selection is Jan 19. Just on whim and out of curiosity I looked up my court records on the state website. What I noticed was that my attorney waived my right to a speedy trial without my knowing after months of me asking why things were taking so long and what happened to my right to due process and a speedy trial. The excuse she gave me was that its just the system and the original DA resigned and they had to wait until they hired a new one. Now mind you this process started on 3/26/15 and waiver to a speedy trial was filled on 8/11/15. What can I do at this point? I did email my attorney about an hour ago making her aware of my findings and asking for an explanation.
